Every worker in the state of Massachusetts has the right to a safe and healthy work environment. When on-the-job injuries do occur — whether minimum safety standards were met or not — the employer is financially liable for their employee’s injuries. This includes both the cost of medical treatment and compensation for lost wages.
Additional employee rights include:
Employers are not allowed to request for an employee to pay for their own medical expenses or to not file a workers’ compensation claim. In addition, employers are prohibited from putting any obstacles in the way of filing a workers’ compensation claim or harassing their employees for doing so.
Though the workers’ compensation system is designed to protect the rights of injured workers, many insurance companies deny claims unfairly. At Brooks Law, we genuinely seek to recover the financial compensation you deserve.
Our legal team has personally worked with other workplace accident attorneys and judges throughout the state, allowing them to strategically prepare for your case in court. We don’t charge anything for the initial consultation and you never have to pay upfront fees. If you don’t collect compensation, we don’t get paid. It’s that simple. Call us today to schedule your free consultation.
Their attention to detail is impressive, as is their patience and in-depth expertise. I would give anybody who needs an attorney my unqualified recommendation to use Brooks Law. They’re extremely good value for money as well.
